"Proxy is refusing connections" but no proxy is configured

Hello,

On Firefox for Android, I get "Proxy is refusing connection" error while attempting to connect to any site on the Internet. But I didn't configure any proxy connection for Firefox! Moreover, this error happens when I use my home Wi-Fi network, but browser works properly when using cellular data or any other Wi-Fi network. Also, browser works for some time if I start VPN (Psiphon in my case), stop Firefox through Android settings, clear cache and start the browser again.

Best regards, Peter

Good day, you can check your phone on viruses , restart router to factory settings,or calling to your provider for more information about some connection issues.

Viruses: Checked, not found Router: rebooted, to no avail. Moreover, firefoxes on other devices in the same network are working properly, and there were no network configuration changes recently.

I am also facing similar problem with Firefox 123.1.0 on Android 14. I do not use any VPN or proxy. I have observed the problem mostly on cellular network with different service providers and sometimes on WiFi network. All other applications and browsers on the device are working fine.
